Rob, I would like to be the first to thank you for your services on the forum. You were the first moderator outside the initial inner circle to be selected, with a keen eye for maintaining order on the forum for three years, even prior to be appointed a World Affairs Board moderator.
At times, when things got a bit out hand, you helped maintain order even as a member. Your services were invaluable throughout Spring and Summer 2006, during the absence of a few key staff, and along with Joe, you deserve accolades for your services, which ensured a bright future for the community.
The late and honorable President Reagan once spoke of The Shining City Upon the Hill. For many of us, the forum is in a small way just that.
I thank you for your services, moderating conflict, seeing the forum through troubled times, and service as an architect, moderator, and adviser on the forum.
I extend by best wishes to you, and have the highest of hopes for a bright future. I know we'll be seeing around still, even if time constraints. You have other commitments , but drop by and visit your friends from time to time.
